Public Service of Tomorrow

Moving Towards Blueprint 2020

Innovation involves continual engagement, collaboration, networking, and improvement. Organizations need to trickle down what innovation means and the innovation vision for the organization to individuals in order to improve the culture of innovation.

hackathongtecSpring2 Innovation provides strategy and training on:

  • Bringing in Innovation, types of innovation and innovative practices
  • Planning for Your Organization’s Future
  • Assessing and Measuring Innovation
  • Innovating Current Processes
  • Tackling Challenges of Innovation
  • Collaboration
  • Change Management


In addition to strategy and training,  we help organizations demystify innovation by putting in place processes and structure around innovation so it is consistent, measurable, transparent, well communicated, and implementable.

We customize our services for each organization and bring a different approach to challenges based on where the organization is in terms of innovation maturity.  Each department is different in their innovation needs. We work with you to assess and identify areas to enhance as organizations move towards Blueprint 2020.

Check out our training courses to see how they align with the new Key Leadership Competencies to promote continuous learning. Two new competencies have been introduced, promoting innovation and guiding change, and collaborating with partners and stakeholders. These align with ‘the Clerk’s vision for a public service that is collaborative, innovative, streamlined, high performing, adaptable and diverse’.
